Wait. An evenhanded prediction for the season?

From ESPN and Buccigross? No. Freaking. Way.

Actually he says nothing in this assessment that isn't true or that the fans haven't said a bazillion times. He recognizes that we have offense and how high we finished in GF last season. He notices our top four an the fact that they're good. But, he also emphasizes that since Anderson's system is offensively minded, the defense lacks, leading to high SOG and GA. Actually, what leads to a high GA is probably our lack of a goaltender that's consistent and healthy... which he mentions too.

Anyone else cringe when he pointed out that we could have had Nash or Bouwmeester? Or, as I've mentioned before, Cam Ward? Yeesh.

Ahh, the beauty of hindsight. The one way that I can have 20/20 vision.
